's not as risky as an uncontrolled delivery and emergency surgery. so really, three big differences here when you compare it to a standard c-section. time. normally when we do a c-section we can have the baby out in seconds. this operation, as we heard, takes hours, before then the baby was born. also, type of an es 2450esh yeah. the goal in the c-section is to keep the baby awake and the mother calm, with good anesthesia so that the anesthesia doesn't go to the baby. in this case you want that anesthesia to the baby because you don't want the baby moving. in blood loss, in a c-section you want to keep the uterus contracted so you don't lose a lot of blood. this is the opposite. it's incredible. >> nice to have you with us. we'll be right back. >> "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by v-8 v-fusion juice. vegetable and fruit juice that just tastes like fruit. discover customersl are getting five percent cashback bonus at the pump... and at many of the places their summer plans take them. it pays to switch, it pays to discover. you get so hooked you'll want to pass it on to a friend. go to getfreshwithafr
